In this context, we collect personal data such as the following: information about your visits to our website, such as the scope of data transfer, the location you are accessing data on our website from, and other connection data and sources you access. This usually occurs through the use of log files and cookies. More detailed information on log files and cookies can be found below.
1.3 In general, your personal data is stored for the duration of the existing contractual relationship between you and us. Where we collect your IP address, this is only stored for the time that you use the website, and is then immediately deleted, or anonymized by shortening it.

2.1.1 To deliver the relevant services requested by you, which includes answering your inquiries and for technical administration;

2.2.1 The collection of the data listed under clause 1.2 (information about your visits to the website, e. g. the scope of data transfer, the location you access data on our website from, and other connection data) is based on Art. 6 § 1 f) of the GDPR. Accordingly, the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.
2.2.2 The collection of information relating to your computer as described in clauses 1.2 and 3.1 (IP address, status and data volume of the request) is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 f) of the GDPR (see above).

3. Information about your computer, cookies and targeting
3.1 Each time you access our site, we collect the following information about your computer: your computer's IP address, the request made by your browser, and the time of this request. Additionally, the status and transferred data volume are collected as part of this request. Your computer's IP address is only stored for the duration of time that you are using the website, and is then immediately deleted, or anonymized by shortening it. We use this data to operate our website, in particular to identify and rectify errors, to determine utilization of the website and to make changes or improvements.
3.2 In some circumstances, we collect information about your use of our website through browser cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your computer and that save certain settings and data on the exchange with our system, via your browser. A cookie usually contains the name of the domain the cookie data was sent from, as well as information about the age of the cookie and an alphanumerical identifier. Cookies enable our systems to identify a user's device and potentially make default settings immediately available. As soon as a user accesses the platform, a cookie is sent to their computer's hard disk. Cookies help us improve our website and provide you with a better, more customized service. They enable us to recognize your computer when you return to our site, which in turn enables us to store information about your preferred activities on our website and therefore align our site with your personal interests (This includes advertising that appeals to you.), and to increase the speed at which your requests can be processed.
3.3 The cookies used by us only store the information described above regarding your use of the website. This information is not assigned to you directly, but through allocation of a cookie ID. The cookie ID is never combined with your name, your IP address or similar data that may allow a cookie to be assigned to you directly. For information on how to prevent the use of browser cookies, refer to clause 3.6 below.
3.4 Our website uses tracking technology. We use this technology to make our website offering more interesting for you. It allows us to address Internet users who have already shown an interest in our website via advertising on our partners' websites. These ads are inserted on our partners' sites using cookie technology and analysis of previous usage behavior. We only use this technology when you have consented to it, or if it is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract with you, or if it is otherwise legally permitted.
3.6 If you wish to prevent the use of browser cookies, you can configure your browser so that cookie storage is blocked. Please note that, if you choose to do this, you may have restricted access to our website or may not be able to use it at all. If you only want to accept our own cookies, and block the cookies of our service providers and partners, you can choose the browser setting "Block third-party cookies“.
4. Google Maps
4.1 On a few pages, this website uses the Google Maps service by Google.
4.2 Each time you access a page on this website that uses Google Maps, a direct connection is established between your browser and a Google server in the US. Confirmation that you have visited this page with your IP address is then sent directly from your browser to the Google server and stored there. Through the use of Google Maps, information about your use of this website, including your IP address and the (home/start) address entered into the route planning function, is transferred to Google in the US. More detailed information about the terms and conditions of use and data privacy is available here:
4.3 Purposes of processing
The purpose is the presentation of interactive maps and provision of a route planner.
To avoid repetition, please refer to clause 4 for further information about the use of the Google service.
5.1 We offer interested parties the opportunity to subscribe to a free newsletter ("News Service"). When registering for the newsletter, data from the registration form is sent to us. We store your name, your email address, the date and time of your registration and the IP address of the computer you used. During the registration process, we collect your consent to the processing of the data and refer you to this privacy notice. No data is shared with third parties in connection with the data processing related to the sending of the newsletter. The data is used exclusively for the purpose of sending the newsletter. The purpose of the data processing is the transmission of the newsletter.
5.2 Legal basis
The legal basis for processing data after a user has registered for the newsletter is the provision of consent pursuant to Art. 6 § 1 a) of the GDPR, and potentially also Art. 6 § 1 f) of the GDPR or Art. 7 § 3 of the German Act against Unfair Competition.
5.3 Duration of the data storage
The data shall be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. The user's email address shall be stored for as long as the newsletter subscription remains active.
5.4 Rights of the data subject, opportunity to object
Subscription to the newsletter may be canceled by a user at any time. For this purpose, each newsletter contains a corresponding link. This also enables a data subject to withdraw their consent to the storage of any personal data collected during the registration process.
6. Social media plug-ins
6.1 We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, SlideShare, LinkedIn and Xing. We employ the "two-click" method for this. This means that, in general, when you visit our website, initially no personal data is sent to the provider of the plug-in. You can identify the plug-in provider by the marking on the box, by their initial(s) or the logo. The buttons give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the plug-in providers. A plug-in provider only receives notification that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offering when you click on the marked field and activate it. Furthermore, the data listed in clause 3 of this notice is also shared. So, upon activation of the plug-in, your personal data is sent to the relevant plug-in provider and stored there (in the US for American providers). Because the plug-in provider primarily collects the data using cookies, we recommend deleting all cookies via your browser's security settings prior to clicking on the shaded box.
6.2 We have no influence over the data that is collected or the relevant data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the volume of data that is collected, the purpose of the processing or the storage duration. We also do not possess any information on the erasure of data collected by the plug-in provider.
6.3 The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you in a user profile and uses this for the purposes of advertising, market research and / or to improve its website design. In particular, analysis like this is used (including for users who are not logged in) to display relevant advertising and to inform other users of the social media channel about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of this user profile, although you must turn to the relevant plug-in provider in order to exercise this right. Via the plug-ins, we give you the opportunity to interact with social media networks and other users so that we can improve our Internet offering and make it more interesting for you as the user. The legal basis for the use of plug-ins is Art. 6 § 1 f) of the GDPR.
6.4 The data transfer happens irrespective of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider or are logged in. If you are logged in with a plug-in provider, your personal data collected by us will be assigned directly to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and, for example, link to the page, the plug-in provider stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend regularly logging out after using a social media platform, and in particular before activating the button, in order to avoid this information being assigned to your profile.
6.5 You can find further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider in the following privacy notices of the respective providers. These links also include information on your corresponding rights and how to configure your settings to protect your privacy.
